Healthy Cooking To Start Out The Year?

more_vert
Hi folks - so, I'm sure I'm not the only one, but the Holidays always expand the waistline for me. I'm back to eating healthy now.........and dropping a bit of what came on. Everywhere I see juicing, etc., as the kickstart to getting back to healthy eating, but I'm curious about some ways to prepare veggies and light meats (like poultry) in an interesting way. Veggies especially - any good tips or recipes/ideas? I shared one a while ago about riced cauliflower, but would love some more......

The simple answer is either the 21-day kickstarte from PCRM (Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine). Really, the new nutritional science points only one way and that is to a Whole Foods Plant-Based diet, without added Sugar, Oil, or Salt. Within a half a year you'll be back in fighting trim. The nutritional science is from T. Colin Campbell (see the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies at Cornell), and the clinical experience is from the likes of Dr. Esselstyn, Dr. Neal Barnard, Dr. Robert Ostfeld, Dr. John McDougall, and many others. It is a new nutritional paradigm, not a diet, and once you make the transition, you won't go back. Who wants to feel miserable again?

If you need a cleanse, see a doctor. Your kidneys aren't functioning, and you need dialysis. Not some coffee shot up your butt or a liquid kale shake diet.
If you have gained some pounds from the holidays, eat some simple food. Roast some veggies in your oven, saute some protein in a pan. Make a vinaigrette for both. Doesn't take a drastic intervention to drop 10 lbs of holiday weight.
If you have more weight to lose, try something more in the line of carb reduction.
Hi Josh. I just started a batch of Water Kefir yesterday to help get my New Year’s rebooted. I am not the best had always making the best (healthy) food choices, and as a professional Chef I have tried just about every fad diet out there. I have given up on “being good” and just trying to “be better”. That’s where the probiotic-rich beverage Kefir comes in. Like other fermented foods, Kefir is an easy way to add probiotics to your daily routine. I purchased my Kefir grains online (amazon) the grains consist of bacteria and yeast that you use to make a batch of Kefir, you mix water (or coconut water) sugar with the grains and let if ferment a day or two. Then strain it out and flavor it with fruit juice and bottle it in an air tight jar for a second fermentation. This second fermentation done under presser carbonates the water and you get a fun and tasty alternative to soda. I don’t know about all the health benefits that surround the probiotic craze but I figure that there has to be something to all the hype and I am having fun making my own bubble juice.

Healthy cooking? I think what you're looking for is healthy EATING!
Take the meats and take the vegetables and put them inside your stomach tubes.

Lately I've been really into cabbage steaks, spaghetti squash or zoodles to replace pasta, and pizza with a cauliflower crust! The cauliflower crust is kind of a time intensive one, so if I do that, I always try to make one to eat that night, and one to freeze for later. Also not sure if that one even counts as healthy since I add a lot of cheese to it..

Try fermenting cabbage for a REAL sauerkraut or making kimchi. It's quite fun and requires very few tools. https://www.thekitchn.com/how-to-make-homemade-sauerkraut-in-a-mason-jar-193124

My ex had a recipe for cabbage soup that was out of this world. Low calorie and really tasty. Wish I still had a copy of it!

Completely surprised by the lack of blade diversity here on Drop...
I’ve been a collector of Blades since before my teens, and a retailer coming up on 15… or maybe 20 years. Drop has really been kind of an interesting experience for me, because I do occasionally get to see some unusual tech and sometimes EDC items that otherwise I might not have been aware of. And maybe it’s because I have a deep love of cutlery and bladed weapons, but I find myself trolling through the site looking at it what’s available; and it’s just it’s pretty much the same. And the bladed community here is just always confused me.. every single knife is about the same, they’re almost all drop points and although the handle materials change and brands change.. it’s really just the same knife over and over and over again... occasionally you’ll see a tanto or a slight variant; but rarely… and almost never a serrated blade. And I’m just deeply amazed at this diversion of serrated blades. And I’m just surprised there isn’t more of a request for diversity here.... and I...

Can we get Sony E-Mount or other mirrorless camera options please..
Would be nice to see some Sony E mount full frame cameras on here. I currently shoot with a A99 and they killed the lense path for better or more option lenses and now is all E-Mount. 🤔

There Are Pandas, and Then There Are Pandas.
And this isn't either of them! The Pandas we're talking about here, are watches, not bears. And what got me thinking about them (again) was a link posted this morning by @cm.rook who pointed a few of us to the very attractive (and not terribly priced) Yema "Rallygraph" Panda which, in it's most traditional arrangement, looks like the one on the left, but can also be had in the version on the right: The model on the left is a true Panda, while the model on the right is called a reverse Panda. The reason for that distinction is clear--Panda bears, only come in the first arrangement. Now at this point, everyone should be thinking about the most well-know Panda, The Rolex Panda, which is actually a Daytona, and among Rolex Daytonas, the most famous of which is the Paul Newman Daytona, which was famous first, because it was Paul's, and second because it sold at auction for $17.8 million (US Dollars). The story of that auction is well-known so I'll only...
